moscow you're watching our t.v. on marina joshing. delhi riots between supporters and opponents of president morsi are heating up in egypt clashes have already left at least three people killed including a u.s. national xandra truth has the latest from cairo. that was to clashes were in egypt's coastal city of alexandria where we saw two people dead including one u.s. citizen the u.s. embassy for their part have removed all non-essential staff in fee that this could be a talkative attack in addition president of came out calling for dialogue between opposition forces and the president saying we must have a united stand the marines the u.s. marines or pows that may have come up with a contingency plan should the violence continue against u.s. citizens so to me i saw in protests people ripping posters of us buses at the car around five percent saying the muslim brotherhood the pro. details from is
definitely following a u.s. agenda civilian grassroots campaign called commodity which means rebel collected at least eighteen million signatures calling for the president to step down they say he's incapable of running the country they've seen no change in the last year the islamists for their part those who support the president say that all these opposition protests are in a just a bit out the president was democratically elected i think that when he says a why something security crisis many citizens are reaching out to quiet security firms to secure their homes and businesses i spoke to very caring opted to maurice protest here say they expect violence and this is something that they really fear in the shadow of the. building. is preparing for the expected file and between supporters and opponents of the egyptian president on sunday somebody says he has already fortified his small shop just of cairo is to his square with sheets of.
list of about them and my kiosk has been robbed and destroyed a few times in previous clashes i'm going to vacate my shop as i'm afraid of what is going to happen in the violence i don't want to lose everything again with the police taking a back seat those who can afford it are reaching out to private security firms like this one general manager a former high ranking police officer but we add to what he says his company is preparing for the worst as protesters demand the resignation of muslim brotherhood president mohamed morsi. on june thirtieth there may be violence between the opposition forces and the islamists so we're sending more people to the places were guarding we're giving our staff and clients special training and information how they can secure their premises and how they deal with clashes. companies like our plug in the gaps amid a deepening security crisis across the country lynchings are on the rise the latest brutal mob killing have. just
a few days ago near the capital civilians are increasingly armed and protests are becoming more violent as citizens bring guns to clashes leaving many to fear for their deaths analysts say the breakdown of security is because citizens no longer fear the police who have been accused of being reluctant to provide security they also blame the government which has failed to confront the interior ministry they are responsible for the bigger they're from of law and order if they don't take the necessary steps to fix it they may want to they may wish to but if they're not actually solving it the buck stops at their door it will find a very difficult to get the ministry of interior to reform for the police services to reform. precisely because inside the police force inside the ministry of interior there are so many people that are really quite opposed to the muslim brotherhood instead of promising change president morsi played with fire in his wednesday's speech to the nation praising the police and thanking them for their work with the violence on the horizon many will be forced to attend egypt's new
thriving private security industry to protect their own homes and businesses tree. cairo as we've just heard the u.s. wants morsi to have a constructive conversation in order to improve the political situation in the country but dr aside sadak says another arab spring type uprising could be imminent because the islam of islamist president hasn't delivered so far. the president that one is is not the all knowing the objectives of the revolution two he was considered the thing his own good at the expense of the national interests of the country and also defend that if if the da if he remained silent until he is in four years egypt would become like somalia or sudan there are local feels that egypt would be their ships and evolution is going to be hijacked like what happened in the reagan revolution islamists who wanted the society to
sleep and stay put and do not intervene and lives in what they want the who on the upswing is about pouring into account the government and now the feel you have to call the account the president because of the one you need to deliver what people expect. so u.s. intelligence whistleblower edward snowden won't be able to leave russia until he meets south american diplomats and that's according to the latest reports with a whistleblower still stranded without travel documents at moscow's sheremetyevo airport wired his money to caution about is also there let's get now the latest from her well you know it looks like snowden is going to stay put for now and any hint as to when and how his situation might get resolved. well it is really sounds like an ongoing saga really merino but according to the latest media reports former
cia contractor abhorrent snowden is not able to leave russia until he meets with a south american diplomats but the tricky thing here is that such a meeting has not been scheduled yet and the legal status off mr snowden is yet to be defined so it is indeed impossible for him now to leave the sherif mansour international airport based here in moscow where he has basically been stuck in a transit zone since last weekend now the u.s. government has revoked his passport which means that he neither can gather a russian visa to leave the airport nor can he theoretically take its own till next flight suit and that's well or have mana however there are reports that mr snowden has made no at times to amy take us on to this destinations now the story develops as well in the president nicolas maduro will ride in moscow this monday
and so we'll believe a album or ralitsa now of both of them this well and dora said that they will consider asylum for outburst snowden however there are several difficult this in reviewing his asylum application now he house to be on the country's diplomatic promises which means that he has to be either within the country you. here he is seeking asylum or within it's here in moscow now meanwhile awkward while at the u.s. demands to snowden's absolute dition the u.s. authorities have only new mers so key sions review sit up with dora and authorities on their demands to oxidize their own citizens so really there are some speculations right now that. the of the as well in president's upcoming visit will actually end the way to resolve this ongoing saga and this. will certainly keep you updated on this story as it develops all right marty thank you so much for this
date now incoming u.s. national security adviser susan rice meanwhile says snowden's revelations have been weakened the presidency or a damage to the country's foreign policy meanwhile the father of the fugitive whistleblower believes that he would return to the u.s. if certain conditions are met well he has outlined those terms in a letter to the u.s. attorney general so lonely snowden says his son should not be detained before trial subjected to a gag order and should be tried in a venue of his choosing. now. the elder snowden also admits that he hasn't spoken to add a word since april and insists that while the x. cia employee committed a crime he's not a traitor the thirty year old n.s.a. whistleblower hasn't been seen since he touched down in russia and while snowden's
future has been the subject of intense debate by the world's media investigative journalist duncan campbell believes it's taking the focus away from what he actually revealed. a lot depends on russia but i think russian game will bespeak to stand back and use an international territory we can do nothing and wait for other players to act but i do think that the focus is wrong because all of this distraction about snowden and where the years and what he might do next has completely undermined the tremendous gravity of the successive documents and revelations that he's made about the the scope of american and allied spying on the civil and commercial affairs of the world i think that many americans that record in our eyes the true values for which their forefathers fought from the war of independence on woods who would see in snowden a real hero but that is never going to be reflected in the demographics when the
price is so tainted disgracefully so silent in simply reporting what he's got to say if there was a dissident in russia or china or the middle east speaking out in the way that snowden is doing it would have massive coverage that's not happening not even in the washington post which covered his first story he was once known as obama's favorite general but now james cartwright could be charged for exposing a u.s. cyber attack on iran the retired marine is being investigated for allegedly revealing the stuxnet virus which disabled nearly a thousand centrifuges at an arabian nuclear plant three years ago are just going to have the details. in two thousand and ten when the u.s. carried out this cyber attack against iran general cartwright was vice chairman of the joint chiefs of staff and he was reported to be one of the crucial players in this cyber attack he resigned in two thousand and eleven and he is now apparently being investigated as the need of that story as you remember the niek about the
obama administration having carried out this cyber attack against iran came before the election last year and the timing raise a lot of questions back then because president obama all but bragged about that operation as he ran for reelection as you remember everybody kind of assumed that it was one of those authorized because the administration information all the time to further its own goals but the timing of this particular about the general being investigated is also very interesting he hasn't been charged with any crimes and yet again from an unnamed source that he's being investigated and this is happening at a time when the hunt for edward snowden is in full swing is the administration trying to make a point here trying to sort of say that they're targeting even the sources of those leaks that they like it really is not clear at this point not clear whether it's their way of trying to fight the perception that the administration gets all it wants and targets only those whose meek's embarrass the government. the leaks
piling up over washington snooping and tapping the u.s. army has come up with the idea to block the revealing reports american military personnel have had access to the u.k.'s guardian newspaper website restricted filtering contant related to the government's blanket surveillance program the british daily has been breaking the news from n.s.a. leaker snowden shedding light on secret documents investigates. this information is regarding reports in the us media that the us military is into the message to them that they have been filtering content regarding government surveillance programs and this came on the back of reports about complaints from a us base in san francisco that a start there won't table to access any of the u.k. guardian websites and only partial access to the us guardian website they said it seems that this is to do with something called network hygiene now this is
preserving their system from any threats externally or internally and i spoke to the end of the press office here in the u.k. and i asked them if anything similar was of course being done with the british military and they told me that this wasn't happening what was being done in the us right now what isn't happening here although they did say that in relation to their computer systems in the military there is some information that is sometimes restricted for security purposes it is raising questions about that suppression of information and to talk more about that i'm joined by chris flowerless for they take this thank you very much for joining us i think the first question to our skids these classified documents that have been released by whistleblower and of course in a very similar way to what we saw with wiki leaks although there's been with public release the still classified documents say i mean the u.s. military justified in you know preserving the system in this way it's nothing to do
with network hygiene it is straight attempt to suppress and to control what is being read and understood by in this case the soldiers the other side of the coin is the american government and the british government are looking at all the internet or the mobile appliances or the landline phones of you me american citizens british and citizens and every single person watching this program so it's a little side ridiculous. because those soldiers could actually get hold of that information both they have. computer access elsewhere. but it's part of an overall increasing encroachment on free speech and access to information the department of defense actually said and i was not going to block websites from the american public in general and that would violate they said the hired help principle of holding in the funding the consultations they've made it clear this is just not in the u.s. this lying when they talk about democracy they are. in the head when
they talk about free speech they are shutting down as many things as they do you have no reason to believe one single thing that the american government says the bottom right of all this to control the information and they normally do it by omission in the american channels not so much later they just don't tell the truth and still had to hear an r.t. whom to arm in syria while more evidence of bloody acts of violence by the syrian rebels emerged questions are raised whether opposition fighters should be the ones to get weapons from their western allies the report leader. and a german she was paid by a broadcaster to lash out at russian officials over the pussy riot trial more details on that coming up shortly.
welcome back here with our team and our act of brutal violence allegedly carried out by syrian rebel fighters has stirred our rage i'm very five video posted on the web shows the rehabbing of three men i find a following images disturbing all the food for it's to show supporters of president assad to capitated with a knife spectators have the execution called women and children and this comes just days after american media citing unnamed officials confirmed that the cia has started to arm the syrian rebels are dishonest as he looks at the possible ramifications. a bloody conflict raging on for over two years violence to get the syrian president to step down versus more violence from
a leader refusing to do so at least ninety thousand lives taken and counting from the get go washington supported the opposition the u.s. is making a terrible mistake in giving this undifferentiated very. over simplified black and white picture that the rebel opposition really good guys and assad is the bad guy it's a very very dangerous state. dangerous because the opposition is not even close to being a unified political force in reality made up of an array of groups. the free syrian army is a network of thousands of militias and maybe they come up to about eighty thousand people what's scary is how many of these people want you know an extremist government and i think it's more you know it's at least half horrific videos such as this one have shown that in the uprising the enemy can not only be killed but. there's ten thousand fighters with al nusra front which is al qaeda in iraq
reconstituted in syria they might as well call themselves you know al qaeda in syria but you know they want to rebrand while the west and russia remain at odds on where u.s. support of the opposition could lead. washington has its mind set on providing vetted groups of rebels with small arms and ammunition they're deluding themselves they think that they can cherry pick which factions of the opposition to support but somehow or other we can control the flow of weapons because we give them only to select people. many experts indicate that american politicians are kidding themselves if they think the arms flow can ever be managed and this question of how to give arms to one group but keep them out of the hands of another can likely never be answered i don't know if i've even heard a clear and unambiguous answer. the obama administration or any foreign policy about where those weapons are going and how we can actually secure
the fact that they're going into the right hands but you know who are the right hand we that russia which has been sending arms to the assad government under a contract that began before the violence says that the united states arming the diversified opposition would kill not only more people but any hope for a peace settlement potentially turning the syrian crisis into never ending chaos like of again a step even if assad is pushed out after years of bloodshed there are no assurances that his departure will bring peace moreover the us goes ahead with any shape or form of involvement in syria which the opposition would embrace the tide could turn much quicker than american officials may desire loyalties are temporary and guns and weapons like diamonds are forever so today they may be your friend and tomorrow they're pointing to you receive the silver that as many as seventy percent of americans want us to stay away from syria let. them out after
a decade of warfare in the middle east some while some are free for a while and the fire come from left or right it might be high time you want to rethink it. that's a trick and artsy. while with up plenty of the stories in our website and here's a peek of what is waiting for you there. child is selling crime with a very grown up punishment a man who scribbled and banking slogans in chalk on the streets of america and now faces a decade in jail so i had to argy dot com to find out why u.s. authorities are keeping him. and another quick away online say she is the f.b.i. may have your picture on its face full recognition database the u.s. government agency is now being sued for collecting the photographs fingerprints and iris scans for millions of americans so. for the full story.
now is a look at some other stories from around the world and in south africa police have fired stun grenades at so-called know obama protesters who were venting their anger against the u.s. president's visit there barack obama is. seeking to boost america's relations and trade ties making trip to three countries on the continent but is not being welcomed by everyone hundreds gathered for demonstrations against u.s. foreign policy africans had high hopes when obama became u.s. president but many feel those have since been dashed american aid to africa has been severely caught while washington has stepped up military operations in the region. starting and now going to thailand were eight soldiers have been killed in a roadside blast in the yard province no groups have yet claimed responsibility for the bombing at least five thousand people have been killed in the muslim insurgency
that's plagued thailand's south since two thousand and four. british prime minister david cameron has made an unannounced visit to you case true. in afghanistan at camp bastion and helmand province cameron pledged a permanent memorial to the four hundred forty four british service personnel who have lost their lives in the conflict and his trip comes amid faltering efforts to negotiate with the taliban it also follows claims of a british commander that talks with the taliban should have been tamped it a decade ago. now one of germany's main broadcasters has found itself in quite an embarrassing situation it's being accused of paying its guests to criticize russia a celebrity supporter of protest group pussy riot who slammed their trial as absurd on the air admitted she was paid to do so the challenge now claims it was all a joke she's been all over investigates. after their trial and conviction pussy
riot still making headlines the local actress on a trial black suggested she was chased by a state broadcaster to talk about the trial and have received money from ted f. to give opinion on the program aspect they pay money for this i cannot tell you how much money a lot of money is who is one of five celebrities who took part in a discussion show about the trial of the punk collective who were jailed for hooliganism motivated by religious hatred in response to questions from money well oxen rights magazine the i.d.f. issued a statement. stressed this was not the case and her expression was of a satirical nature for all it is extremely sorry that her satirical remarks were misunderstood and she asks forgiveness for causing this situation they give the impression all those five if the impression that it's a harsh dictatorship punishing. girls for
a little artistic if you write coverage what's not re presenting at all of the opinion in the german people the i.d.f. is among a group of media outlets that receives their funding from the german license fee with each household expected to contribute around eighteen months the fact that the german state t.v. . celebrities sharing the same opinion on the pussy riot trial and on the pussy riot case is keeping a very wrong impression outside also about germany because this gives the impression that we all are thinking the same if. a group like pussy riot would try to do the same thing somewhere in a catholic church itself germany i think they could be happy to be caught by the police and not to be caught by the audience in the church the main cathedral in cologne saw its own pussy riot demonstration the judge eventually issued stiff fines to two of the german participants while the hearing of the third is being despond all without the rule recant we saw in. school incident despite denials of
any wrongdoing from the c.d.f. and on it it seems questions being raised over the objectivity of german state media peter all of a girl in. and of banks are key crunches the numbers on the money is next after a short break stay with us. i love life but there is a lot of sick stuff going on on this planet for example according to bloomberg a hospital in chicago has been accused by the f.b.i. of cutting the throats of patients for big bags of cash a tracheotomy is a procedure to get air directly into the windpipe of someone who can't breathe by cutting a hole into it an f.b.i. affidavit based on tape recording says that the hospital knowingly and purposely
sedated patients to the point that they couldn't breathe properly and would need tracheotomy and as you know in the u.s. health care system nothing comes cheap trick out of his own days cost about one hundred sixty thousand dollars a pop this alleged conspiracy between doctors and management is not the first of its kind at this hospital an administrator and five doctors have already been charged for medicare fraud for giving and receiving kickbacks not only is having a hole punched in your neck for money disgusting but it may also be lethal because patients at that hospital in chicago are three times more likely to die than patients at other hospitals from tracheotomies throughout the state now how did the f.b.i. find out about this with three employees ratted out the hospital and worked with the f.b.i. to make a lot of incriminating voice recordings these people risk their jobs and possibly much more to do what was right and i salute them reading out evil is no wrong deed but that's just my opinion.
